Just off the top of my head:The man hasn't authored a single opinion of significance in the decades that he has been on the court.
GOOD NEWS CLUB V. MILFORD CENTRAL SCHOOL
Staples v. United States, 511 U.S. 600 (1994).
14 PENN PLAZA LLC v. PYETT
And that's only of his opinions. He's at his best when he's concurring or dissenting to make a point.
I'm sure that if I bothered to go through this list, I'd find plenty more:
Supreme Court Collection: Opinions by Justice Thomas
What does this have to do with anything? Please don't tell me that you view one's level of interaction at oral arguments as indicative of anything beyond the desire to hear oneself speak.He is well known for not engaging in questioning during hearings, despite the fact that he may have done so on a couple of ocassions.
Then why is it that you can't offer a remotely cogent criticism of him, and instead resort to the overplayed and completely uninformed "he just follows scalia, he doesn't talk, he's dumb, etc."?I work in the legal profession....I read Supreme Court opinions daily......so your criticism that somehow I haven't studied Thomas and know what I am talking about is unfounded.
